Throwback Thursday : our new home .. 1979

The week has flashed by and it’s Thursday yet again … it’s nearly Friday, but I still qualify for a Throwback Thursday post as I have two hours to go before ‘Cinderella time’  when Friday begins !!!

The homes we have lived in comes to an end in this post .. we still live here!!!  We started building in Weltevreden Park in late 1979 and moved into our new home in February 1980.  Foundations marked out …

My garden changes gradually as time goes by.  Trees grow providing shade and plants have to change accordingly.  Trees die or are chopped down to make way for a garage, or are diseased or struck by lightening (which has been the case most of the time) and accordingly, surrounding plants cope with the changes or are moved to other spots

  1. Amazing the difference an established garden and landscaping does. We also have pics like this of our first house. 65 square meters. Not very big at all

    Your garden is beautiful! I can picture lying under the shades and listening to birds chirping away
